There is a multitude of things that we love about the '90s, but one of our favorite aspects is the feuds between all of the divas. Obviously, we would never ever promote girl-on-girl hate, but the rivalries between female superstars go unmatched. For decades, the world has latched on to the alleged feud between Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez. Both went from singing onstage to starring in major films at a time where women of color struggled to break out into the mainstream.
Everybody knows that Carey has compiled a long list of enemies throughout her career, but for her to have issues with J.Lo seemed a tad bit unnecessary. (After all, she's got Ariana Grande to worry about now!) Speculations of the beef resurfaced this past year when Lopez was spotted texting during Carey's performance at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards. Last night, J.Lo made a guest appearance on Watch What Happens Live. Naturally, Andy Cohen was digging for dirt and asked her about the incident, which she addressed with grace.
"I know from back in the day, I've read things that she's said about me that were not the greatest, but we have never met. Like, we don't know each other. I think it's kind of from word of mouth of things that have happened in the past that I'm not really aware of," she said. "I would love to meet her and I would love to be friends with her... I think she's incredibly talented and I've always been a fan of hers. 'My All' is one of my favorite songs of all time. I just love her. It saddens me to hear anything that's negative because I'm a fan of hers."
So there you have it, no drama here. (J.Lo did have some things to say about her ex Ben Affleck and his tattoo, though...) Watch the conversation go down in the video, below—and when you're done, take a look at the brilliant Got 2B Real parody series where there can only be one diva to rule them all.
